Jenny Marra : Scottish Labour Comment on ONS Labour Market Statistics

12 November 2014

Commenting on the Office of National Statistics Market Statistics released today, Scottish Labour’s deputy spokesperson for Finance and Youth Employment, Jenny Marra, said:

“Today’s employment figures are good news for Scotland.

“It looks as if employment for the over 65s makes up a large part of the increase in employment.

“This means that opportunities for the working age population are not as good as they might seem on the face of it.

“Most people want jobs for their children and grandchildren, so the Government must be fully aware of these employment trends in the economy if they are going to tackle the scourge of youth unemployment and create good employment conditions for young families."
